Lattes-Montpellier did not miss its reunion with the Women’s League. The Hérault women started very strong with an advantage of twelve lengths at the end of the first quarter. The teammates of a ruthless Myisha Hines-Allen (26 points, 16 rebounds) have found their locker room with a margin of 17 lengths. Jasmine Bailey (20 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists) and the Northerners had to wait for the last ten minutes and a certain relaxation of their opponent to stop the bleeding for a defeat of fourteen points (75-61), the second in as much of matches.

Basket Landes does not stop

After a first success at Villeneuve d’Ascq, the Landaises confirmed the trend when they moved to Landerneau. A match started strong with a 12-5 to start and a 7-0 to conclude the first quarter with a margin of ten lengths in favor of the teammates of Valériane Vukosavljevic (28 points). The Bretons did better than resist before half-time with a delay limited to twelve points when they returned to their locker room. The teammates of Ezinne Kalu (18 points, 7 assists) and Elodie Naigre (18 points) raised the tone in the third quarter to return to four lengths before giving in in the last ten minutes for a loss of eight lengths ( 77-85).

Villeneuve d’Ascq in the snatch

Villeneuve d’Ascq, for his part, found the right fuel for the reception of Charnay … but it was not easy. The Burgundy players started the game much better to lead by nine points after ten minutes of play. But Haley Peter’s teammates (12 points, 7 rebounds) accelerated before half-time to lead by four points in the return to the cloakrooms. Led by Mikayla Cowling (14 points, 6 rebounds), Charnay did not give up to turn the situation around before the last quarter. Thanks to two free throws from Courtney Hurt (3 points, 6 rebounds), the Northerners snatched an extension which turned in their favor (64-57 AD).
